Honey Buzz: Will 'Foxcatcher' Win Steve Carrell an Oscar?



Well, summer is finally over, and for those who have little patience for blockbuster season *cough cough me cough cough* the time has finally come to sit back and relax into fall... also known as OSCAR SEASON!

Whatever. I embrace it.



A few films have already made waves on the festival circuit, but none has garnered more positive buzz than Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher. This unbelievable true story of a paranoid schizophrenic bankrolling a man's Olympic wrestling career already has critics talking about a possible Oscar nomination for Steve Carrell's transformative performance. Director Miller has history with the Academy as well, as his past films Moneyball and Capote were both nominees, so Foxcatcher seems like a guaranteed attention-getter.

Based on the trailer alone, a cast including Carrell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo, all appear to be at the top of their game. Specifically, Carrell is shedding the funny man we are all used to and totally embracing his inner thespian. And also, his inner terrifying creep.

It's that nose. Why is it so untrustworthy??

Watch the trailer for Foxcatcher below and see what YOU think... Are Oscar nominations guaranteed for this true crime thriller?
